Classes Taught:

    • Depaul2 Introduction to Biology (BIO 115) – Undergraduate: Deals with the scientific method, biological chemistry, structure, function, and heredity of cells and organisms, evolution and ecology for non-biology majors.
    • General Biology III (BIO 193) – Undergraduate: Deals primarily with diversity and development within the plant and animal kingdoms including basic principles of physiology. Lecture-laboratory.
    • Vertebrate Physiology (BIO 310) – Undergraduate: Functions and regulatory mechanisms of vertebrate cells, organs and organ systems with special emphasis on mammals. Lecture-Laboratory.
    • Advanced Comparative Physiology (BIO 352/452) – Undergraduate and Graduate: Comparative and environmental approach to the functions and mechanisms of vertebrate organ systems. Selected topics will be addressed using a lecture/discussion/seminar format.
    • Field Studies in Marine and Estuarine Biology (BIO 318) – Undergraduate: This course is designed for science majors with an interest in marine and estuarine biology and will examine this subject from an ecological perspective. The primary objectives of the course are: 1) to explore the diversity of marine and estuarine life; 2) to understand the manner in which physical and biological factors influence biological diversity in marine systems; 3) to understand the role that humans play in shaping these dynamics; and 4) to develop professional connections and gain real-life experiences in marine science.
